No Scraping By

The other day I was putting on some make-up and I grabbed my eye liner, the glimmer stick kind, and just started using it. It didn't seem to be working as well as usual and I realized I hadn't given it the usual little twist to make sure there was enough pencil to work without the plastic case scraping me. I mentally shrugged and figured it was enough to get me by.

But as I continued scraping with the glimmer stick it hit me, I do something similar with God and His power in my life. Just like I had available to me all the eye liner I needed, and more, with a simple twist of the pencil, I have all the power I need by simply asking God. It's just a matter of tapping in to what I already have in God.

Let me tell ya, I stopped scraping that glimmer stick along my eye and gave it that little twist. I saw just how ridiculous and lazy I was for being satisfied with scraping when I didn't have to. I don't want to just scrape by when it comes to God and His power in my life. I want that turned up so it can easily flow.

"I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." ~John 10:10

Let's not be satisfied with just scraping by when it comes to God in our lives.
